Our pets are our best friends, which is why it’s disappointing that we can’t always bring them with us when we want to get a cup of coffee or meet with friends. But all hope is not lost – here are five cafés in Chennai that are welcoming of not only you, but also your furry friends! Do make note that none of these cafes actually serve dog food – but all of them accommodate requests for pet friendly human food.
You And Your Bestie Can Hang Out At These Pet Friendly Cafes In Chennai
Wild Garden Café at Amethyst
The Wild Garden Café is probably the first café in Chennai that allowed pets on to their property. The café is lush with greenery and plants, and even has a garden complete with a lotus pond that pets will love walking through.
The Farm, OMR
If you and your pet are up for a drive during the weekend, The Farm is where you should go! The Farm, is literally a farm that has been converted into a restaurant and cafe. The Farm has a great deal of open space that your pet will enjoy exploring, and given the number of cows, buffaloes and other animals that live there, he/she might even make new besties! If you let the staff know that you’re bringing a pet in advance, they will even suggest activities to keep your pet occupied.
Sandy's Chocolate Laboratory
The Teynampet branch of Sandy’s Chocolate Lab has outdoor seating for people who want to bring in their pets. The staff there are both friendly and familiar with animals, so rest assured that your pet will feel very welcomed. Sandy’s is open all day, but the seating area can get hot during the afternoons, so we recommend you visit in the evenings, when the weather is pleasant.
Ashvita Bistro is another café that allows you to bring your pets along while you have a cup (or three) of coffee. Be warned though, while they are pet friendly, the café is a little small, so their outdoor seating is limited — this isn’t a problem for small pets, but if you have a slightly larger dog, like say a Labrador, it might not be the most convenient seating arrangement.
Most of us know Chamiers Café as a gorgeous old world café that is completely indoors. However, they do have outdoor seating at the back that is pet friendly. If you want to shop in the little boutiques that the café houses, though, you’ll have to leave your dog with a friend.
If you and your furry pal are looking to score some good pizza together, then Craveyard Cafe at Adyar is the place to head to! This pet-friendly cafe has one of the best Italiano Chicken and the Veggie Delight pizzas. And for the coffee lovers, try their Irish Coffee or the cold coffee. You'll love it.
This awesome pet-friendly resto-cafe is probably the most heard one in Chennai. After relocating to Ananda Road at Alwarpet, this restaurant has been offering great food and experience for its guests and their pets! Twisty Tails is the perfect spot to take your pets on a date, as they can play around while you dine on some fine pasta.
ATTE Glocal Cafe
This compact and quirky cafe at Besant Nagar, is the home to two of the most friendliest dogs in town. A husky named Whiskey and a bulldog named Madras will keep you company as you dine and play board games at this cafe! You're welcomed to bring you pets too and let them play with and meet other dogs. Also, their pastas and shakes are cool and budget! Need we say more? Just take your pets there now!
This banglow turned restaurant at Neelankarai, offers one of the best setting a resto-cafe can. Talk a walk on the beach between meals or simply enjoy sitting outside where is ambiance is super chill. Oh, since you're reading here, this place is also pet friendly! That's right, take you pal on a beach date and enjoy a yummy meal while you're at it! Their desserts are sinful too.
